NJ State Police Driving Safety

Since there are many people in New Jersey in the private sector who had to  go to work, we offering the following advice for the dicey ride home

  • Regardless of current rain conditions, travel much slower than normal to avoid losing control when you drive into ponding and standing water that is already on every roadway
  • Never drive through standing water, even if you think your vehicle can clear the depth.  You could stall and block road access for emergency workers 
  • Expect that flash flooding can turn a stream under a roadway into a river capable of washing vehicles right off the road.  One woman lost her life during Irene when her car was swept over the guidrails into a flooded forest in Cumberland County.
  • If you don’t have to be on the road, stay home.  This is no time to venture out for sightseeing.
